Before applying for a work permit, a foreign national must have a temporary or permanent residence permit. Work permits are valid until the expiration of the residence permit. Foreign nationals who will be employed for the purpose of performing duties set out in a foreign investment agreement are not required to obtain a work permit.

Temporary and permanent residence permits are issued by the Republic Police Department. Holders of residence permits may obtain Serbian identity cards.

To obtain a temporary residence permit, a foreign national applies to the local Republic Police Department by stating the reasons for the temporary stay and, if requested, providing documents justifying the reasons. The applicant must also prove that he or she has heaIth insurance and sufficient financial means for his or her support during the stay in Serbia. A temporary residence permit is valid for one year (or until the expiration date of the holder's passport, if sooner), and may be extended for similar periods if sufficient reasons exist.

For expatriate employees, social security contributions may also be payable on salaries received outside Serbia. Under certain bilateral conventions, expatriates may pay social security contributions in their country of residence only.
